Why did I move to South Africa in 1988?
TWO QUAALUDES AND A SIDE OF FULL MOON
Excruciating pain always accompanies the monstrous change.
Two Quaaludes followed by a half a glass of water dulls our savage nerves.
For decades, the raging beast inside me emerged enraged from the pain of transformation.
Those pills look as big as the South African full moon when the haze washes over both of us.
